Please join us, along with other parishes from South Deanery at this celebration to pray for the Church, its leaders and the whole body of Christ.
For the Church: that we, who have inherited the Gospel of ‘good news for the poor,’ of hope and of human dignity may be able to live up to it by the way we treat each other, especially those who are most in need.
We pray particularly for all who have suffered abuse in any way within the church community. Lord, hear us
For Pope Francis and all who have responsibility to support people in faith and goodness. We thank God for the witness of St Paul 6th and St Oscar Romero who are canonised today. Lord, hear us
That people everywhere may enjoy peace and be free from any kind of oppression, neglect and violence. We pray for the peoples of the Middle East and for the conversion of all who profit in any way from the promotion of war and the sale of arms. Lord, hear us
We pray for our sick and housebound including Noel Donnelly, Catriona Glen, Tracey Clark, Catherine Walker, Kelvin Mobbs, Jack Rae, Bill Harrison, Anne Judge, Frank Kearney, Marian McCulloch, Cathy Gilbert, Moira Montgomery, Yvonne Watt and Jerry Connor – we pray also for those who care for them Lord, hear us
For our deceased friends and relatives, including Leo Gilbert, Mike Daly, Annie Harris, Margaret Broe and Lena McCabe, and for all who mourn. Lord, hear us
We remember those whose lives are at risk as they serve the community in the armed forces. Lord, hear us
